Stars For A New Millenium FINISHED!!!!!!!!!!!!

Happy, happy, happy dance!!!!  Stars For A New Millenium is finished!!  We went ahead and completed the last two squares and the borders, and it is finished!!  Wahoo!!
These last two squares seemed to take forever!  Ingred Bergman (the one on the left) had a lot of couching which is very slow going.  And Gary Cooper, on the right, had many layers & changes of color.  But they sure turned out pretty!
Here is the whole thing finished!  Be sure to check out Jan's as well!  It is so much fun to see all the different color ways.  I have accumulated pix of quite a few and they are all so different. 
I haven't decided about the framing yet, but I will probably have a mat cut to fit the outer edge.  It'll be awhile before I get that done.

I am very proud to have completed this beautiful piece.
